Taxi driver attacks Ethiopian in downtown Johannesburg

A taxi driver attacks an Ethiopian national in Delvers Street in Central Johannesburg as tensions around rumoured xenophobic attacks mount. Amid fears of xenophobic violence breaking out in the city centre following bloodshed in KwaZulu-Natal, foreign shop owners were warned via SMSes to close their shops today.

Hundreds of shop owners of all nationalities gathered on the streets refusing to leave saying they would fight back.
